Our church’s most popular outreach event is the Women’s Spring Tea. It is a lovely and delicious event. I was asked to speak and share my testimony. I shared the stage with a few others who had testimonies of troubled times such as divorces, death of children and loss. I knew God would place me last on the program and I felt His guidance through prayer to write a humorous speech so that the Tea could end on a joyful note. I liked the tea party humor that the Lord helped me with to make everyone laugh a lot and to prepare my audience for my telling of His great work in my life. This was my beginning:
Last Christmas, I invited some of my neighbors to a little tea party at my home so that we could get to know one another better. I asked each one to bring a symbol of their faith. Maria, my Catholic neighbor next door, was the first to arrive. She brought a crucifix that hangs in her hallway. Peggy, across the street, is an atheist so she did not bring anything. Rachel, who lives several houses down the street is Jewish and she wore a charm bracelet with a Star of David. The last to arrive was Dee Dee, my neighbor from the street behind me. You gotta love Dee Dee! She walks in the door, late, as usual. She says “Hi, everyone! I’m Dee Dee. I’m a Baptist and I brought a casserole.”
I hope you will go to Homesteader's Heart and visit Kim today. She’s been gearing up all week for her big birthday celebration. She’s been sharing personal facts about herself so we can know her inside and out! It was Kim’s idea that we submit something personal and humorous about us today for Friday Funnies, so if you’re up to it, bless her by joining us with something funny about yourself! We'll have a great birthday party together, laughing a lot! Love you, Kimmy and happy, happy birthday!
